we predicted last night he got bed reviews from pun dits and focus groups. most didn't land and he looked nervous and feisty and he hearsed in a year when voters crave authenticity. he landed a couple of punches by catching him in contradictions. the most striking example is denying putin is a better leader than president obama when that's what he said. >> governor pence said, in leader than president obama. >> that is absolutely inaccurate. >> i think it's inarguable that putin has been a stronger leader in his country than barack obama has been in this country. >> kaine and the moderators tried to pin him down on other points. why does he think it's okay for trump to with hold tax afters pence released ten years of his returns. peps had a way of damaging questions he does not want to
broader opponent than chewing clock. he did the same with us. >> does donald trump calling hillary clinton quote the cofounder of isis strike you as in any way insid area or inflammatory or over the top. >> there's no question the failed leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton in the wider middle east created the conditions which isis was created. >> in terms of choice of words you said name calling has no place in public life. calling names like crazy bernie and calling hillary clinton the devil. >> donald trump and i have different styles but we have the same goals and exactly the same convictions. >> i ask if he has exactly the same convictions why he endorsed ted cruz in the primaries instead of trump. pence responded by repeating how proud he is to stand with trump. in the end pence turned in a stronger debate performance.
impact. pence may have stalled clintons advance after a run of bad news for donald trump. and maybe have given trump -- at that end so did bill clinton tieing himself in knots over obamacare! you have this crazy system where 25 million more people have healthcare. the people busting it sometimes 60 hours a week wind up with premiums doubled and koefrj cut in half. it's the craziest thing in the >> the affordable healthcare act did a world of good. a the 50 spg efforts to repeal it was a mistake. >> we'll show you how that will affect the race. first its wednesday night and it's game night with scott smith. teem to play and help him make the call. in sports scott smith makes us call the plays. but in politics we put him to test.
>> scott smith. scott, you've been on fire. >> i'm doing good. i'm ready to keep going. [cheering] >> before we show you anything, i want to start off with a quote which begins, somebody says, this country needs a leader. i think i have a much higher iq than you do i suspect and i'd be delighted to compare my iq to yours. somebody said was that president obama? vice president biden? senator nelson on donald trump? >> i'm feeling good from last week. i think i got some of that trump vibe. d, donald trump. >> is he talking about his irk q? take a look. >> this country needs a leader. >> i have a much higher iq than you do, i suspect. i'd be tliethed to compare mine to yours. >> you would think it might have been donald trump but it was joe biden. we tripped you out. we're going with the biden theme.
he's introducing the president of the united states. how does he introduce the president of united states. here's how it starts. >> a man who will be the next president of the united states... >> a man who will be the next president of the united states. does he say, barack biden sf barack america? barack me amadeus or he's barack the man, man? i'm going to go, is it a? barack biden? >> it might be a. let's see. >> the man who will be the next president of the united states barack america. >> month. barack america. not barack biden. barack america. well, you're still one and one. >> didn't he introduce himself as the president once? >> yeah. he's done a lot of things. >> okay. that's where the wires are crossed. >> when you stay on a biden theme he says many things that
which brings us once more to a quote from joe biden. >> how is the time to heed the timeless advice from teddy roosevelt. >> the timeless advice from teddy roosevelt. what is that timeless advise? speak softly an carry a big stick? cred belongs to the man whose face is marred bedust, sweat and blood. is it i'm going to trust, bust you up. or is it friends don't let friends vote >> okay. you know, i want to say a. >> he could have said any of these. >> i want to say a but i'm leaning toward c. i'm going to go c. i'm going to trust bust you up. >> it's a biden thing to say. take a look. >> now is the time to heed the timeless advice from teddy roosevelt. speak softly and carry a big stick. end of quote.
>> e knew it. >> the obvious one. i gave you the fake ones. >> you've done a good job of conning me. >> i did. he didn't end the quote. h said more. end of quote. that's not one of the choices. he follows it up by saying and i swear sometimes you have to beat people over the head with that stick. nobody laughs. or, b, instead of softly i've been known to speak awfully? >> a moment of ca >> he asked a paralyzed man or d says i promise you the president has a big stick? >> yeah. let's go d. >> does he do that? take a look. >> speak softly and car ray big stick. end of quote. i promise you the president has a big stick. >> there you go. you got it. >> yeah. >> we probably should have ended on that.

mail. we're seeing a huge spike if vote by mail requests and it looks as if half the vote in florida may be in before election day. if you plan to vote by mail your ballot can get rejected for reasons you may not expect. we investigated one of the problems a couple of years ago. ? ? >> within vote can make a difference. >> one vote. >> turn out and vote. >> vote. >> and activists urge us to vote. >> we want everybody's vote to count. >> every vote counts. >> get out and vote. >> it's important for us that votes are counted. >> every vote counts. >> we discovered thousands of votes in florida do not count. >> i'm not a happy camper over it. >> margaret is a registered florida voter casting her ballots for the past 45 years.
>> but when we checked the canvassing report we found out her vote for romney in 2012 didn't count. her vote for david jolly this year for congress didn't count either. >> really disappointed. oh. >> she had a stroke and her handwriting changed. her ballots were rejected because her signature on the ballot no longer matched her official signature on file. >> this woman had a stroke. she's not going to sign t >> it hurts because i've been doing it so long. >> she's not alone. in the congressional race between david jolly and alex synch179 rentaling sistered voters were rejected. in the st. pete mayors race and municipal elections 58 votes rejected for the seam ring. jessica voted in both race and both of her ballot weres thrown out. >> i was kind of discouraged
to vote and then it came back and didn't count. >> remember, florida once decided a national election by 537 votes. we don't know hom of those ballots were scratched due to signature variations because a lot of records from 2000 are gone. but in the 2012 race for president, just in the tampa bay region, signature variations from registered vote rs cost more than 900 people their votes. >> they may have been registered to vote for 20 or 3 signature and now it doesn't look anything like their signature when they registered to vote. >> this affects seniors when their handwriting changes over time and younger voters who may sign up before they perfect their signatures. >> maybe how you signed your name at the d-m-v when you preregistered to vote at 16 is not how you sign your name now that you have a career. >> constantly signing documents.
shortened and quicker and sloppy. >> the law requires election offices to compare signatures of mail in ballots to protect the integrity of the votes. election supervisors send letters to people notifying them when their signatures do not match. they say this problem is si for effective voters to fed ex. >> it's important that people keep updating those registration forms with their signature on it. >> we don't want to discourage anyone from vote by mail but don't scribble the signature. if you think you have an outdated signature reach out and sign a form to update your signature. if you have trouble signing for some reason, election managers suggest a distinguishing mark that you can replicate. if you vote by mail. you also need to make sure your sign the envelope as required by law. on a different note, you might want to check your voter registration. after the primary this year dozens of voters told us their registration was switched
>> checked all the boxes and crossed all the t's. >> voters like jason brooks said they are certain they registered at democrats or republicans before the deadline. >> i registered democrat. when it got there i was independent. >> we found nearly a dozen cases. >> it happened to a friend of mine. >> we except finding more. >> maybe twenty or thirty. somewhere around there that came o my attention. there may have been more. i don't know. >> most voters we newed a license or tax collector. then somehow their registration switched or defaulted to independent. they don't remember ever signing anything to give up their party and with it the ability to vote in a primary. supervisor of elections ties the problem to outdated computers across the state. >> you know e i know they have a very cumbersome computer system antiquated they are dealing with.
right screen when they make that selection, that's where the problem seem to occur. >> so, if they don't ask someone about their party because they are there for something else, they can get switched. >> because all somebody is trying to do is change their address. then when the button is pushed it's now taken their, whatever their party affiliation was and put it to unknown which defaults to n-p-a and r-is. >> young voters who may be more likely to move may be more likely to get switched. that may election in november but it can burn voters down the road in closed primaries. coming up. charley leduff tracked federal coming up. charley leduff tracked federal tax dollars from ?? with this level of engineering... coming up. charley leduff tracked federal tax dollars from it's a performance machine. with this degree of intelligence... it's a supercomputer. with this grade of protection... it's a fortress. and with this standard of luxury...
